Preview Green Bay Cleveland

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthyGreen Bay and Cleveland. If the game against Baltimore proved the Packers are tough. The game will surely test the Packers toughness. The Packers are sending out a number of rookies to fill the void left by injuries.

Back to the preview of the Game. Three things to watch.

1. Rookies: Myles White, Stonebrenner, Palmer, and Mulumba will all be seeing action on Sunday against Cleveland. The rookies need to step up quickly. They don’t have to time to act like rookies.

2. Special teams: With all the injuries the special teams have taking a big hit. Kuhn had the bone headed play on the blocked punt. The special teams looked lost and unable to make a play. Baltimore had nice returns against the Packers. Micah Hyde will take over the return duties. If he give the offense good field position the Packers should win easily. If Hyde gets frazzled it could cost the Packers the game. Cleveland has a speedy return man that if the Packers special teams cannot keep him in check, it could be a long day.

3. Eddie Lacy: He can make a difference maker in this game. With all the uncertainty with the receiving group, Lacy needs to be in super beast mode. Rodgers can use the run game to give his young receivers the space they need to make a catch.

My final thoughts are that the Packers will win this game. Packers 27-10 Cleveland.
